Fun Friday Finds ~ Golden Abundance

By Mollie

November: Autumn days are quickly turning into chilly nights. It feels like 9:00 p.m. at 6:00 p.m.. What few leaves left on trees are planning their upcoming drop to the frost-covered grass (or maybe snow, depending on where you are in Minnesota.)

Many of you are beginning your preparation for the holidays and the whirlwind they create. But many of you are also celebrating your birthdays this month. A special day spent with family, friends or a beloved pet, remembering the events of your past year, and planning ahead for a year full of adventure and more memory-making.

This week's Fun Friday Finds is all about you and your birthstone, the citrine. This beautiful translucent gem in shades of Yellow, Golden Yellow, Yellow-Orange and even Yellow-Green is said to have energy of good fortune and luck.

In other lore, it is said to promote success, abundance and personal power to those who wear it. Emulating the sun, it shines of optimism and light and increased creativity. For many shop owners, it is even stored in the cash box of to promote success, which earned it the nickname "Merchant's Stone."

With all of it's wonderful hues and qualities, I say fill your lives with this magnificent gem! Let the items featured this week get you started...
